that the majority of the voters in virginia want common sense background checks. they don't want to end the second amendment. but they think we shouldn't be selling guns to criminals and people with psychiatric problems. and from my personal point of view, i represent new york city, when we stop people with guns, illegal guns, more of them come from virginia, sadly, than from any other state. that was one of the factors that convinced me i should put money into this race. >> we've seen more tragedy shooting eventness the past couple of weeks, the l.a.x. incident, the gunman who killed himself in new jersey a few days ago. in a few weeks we're going to commemorate newtown. do you think president obama has done enough to persuade congress, to push this issue that you've been trying to work on so hard? >> i think the answer is no, he's not done yuf, but yes, he is trying as hard as he can. we have not got this done yet and it's not just up to the president. he has stood up and said we should have reasonable background checks. he's pointed joe biden as his go-to guy. we talk strategy. both of the pres
, they don't know me, they haven't been paying attention. >> reporter: we spent the day with the governor as he shook a few final hands and reflected on what the republican party can learn from his campaign. he is polling well here and it's anticipated he may make inroads with traditionally democratic voters, women, minorities. >> you've obviously been talking about this in terms of a lesson for the republican party nationally, not just a new jersey lesson. you're hoping for democrats, independents, women, minorities, groups that the republican party has been struggling with state-wide. >> it's certainly been my goal for the last four years, you know, and i think one of the mistakes our party has made is that we go six, eight, anyone months before an election and start to talk to groups that haven't normally been, you know, supportive of us and say how about looking at us now, and i think those folks are rightfully suspicious when you do that. so we have been working -- >> african-americans? >> african-americans, hispanics, folks who have not normally been in the republican column. you ne
me up again. i wish you'd take me to the park. i don't use my rescue inhaler a lot... depends on what you mean by a lot. coping with asthma isn't controlling it. test your level of control at asthma.com, then talk to your doctor. there may be more you could do for your asthma. but with less energy, moodiness, and a low sex drive,y first. i saw my doctor. a blood test showed it was low testosterone, not age. we talked about axiron. the only underarm low t treatment that can restore t levels to normal in about 2 weeks in most men. axiron is not for use in women or anyone younger than 18 or men with prostate or breast cancer. women especially those who are or who may become pregnant and children should avoid contact where axiron is applied as unexpected signs of puberty in children or changes in body hair or increased acne in women may occur. report these symptoms to your doctor. tell your doctor about all medical conditions and medications. serious side effects could include increased risk of prostate cancer; worsening prostate symptoms; decreased sperm count; ankle, feet or body swelli
reporting on why gus recently withdrew from the college of william and mary? >> no, we don't have any additional information. our reporter who covers higher education is working, has confirmed that, but i don't have any further information about what the reasons were. i know one delegate, a minority leader from charlottesville, is close to senator deeds. sent us a statement earlier today saying the senator was quite close to his son and he had exerted what was called herculean efforts over the last several years to help him. so my guess is that this is -- has been a long struggle and we just don't know the details. >> creigh deeds, tell us more about him. he obviously ran for governor against bob mcdonnell four years ago, is now a state senator, was then as well. how big a figure is he in this community? >> well, i think he's a very big figure in western virginia. he was the commonwealth's attorney there. he served in the house delegates, he served in the senate, ran for governor, and i think he's very well liked. i don't know anybody from either party who doesn't like creigh deeds. h
, they will be able to get into the air and get an aerial view of exactly what has happened. they don't have a good sense yet of exactly how much damage has been done. nobody does, because this super typhoon covered such a vast area, you will really only see that devastation from the air. they want to find out where it's been hit hardest, who has been hit the hardest and what do they need, food, water and medication most likely. but of course, there is also the possibility they won't be able to land, if the landing strips, the helicopter pads are flooded and under water, how will they get to the people who need their help? so everything is up in the air at this point. the pictures as you say that we have seen show us that we should expect some serious devastation. the first that were taking the initial brunt of this storm on the east coast of the philippines, we saw streets that were just rivers of water filled with debris. we saw the strong winds ripping roofs off buildings and also the storm surges swallowing up a couple of small houses on the seashores so basically, what the hope is is that peop
why republicans see the hypocrisy? i don't have a clip -- good to i don't have a clip because you weren't in the senate. can you understand why republicans say this is hypocritical, democrats were against this tooth and nail in 2005? >> i can understand it but the reality is it has been an unprecedented level of obstruction. i mean, in 2005, they reached a compromise. they put judges on the court. here, we have just hit a wall. there was no compromise, they said they weren't going to fill them, they had a bill to abolish the vacancies on the court. this is probably the most important court in the nation except for the supreme court, handling all the administrative rulings, regulatory rulings, major issues that the administration puts out there. so this, we reached this unprecedented level of obstruction and so we had to break through this. but i think this is returning to the constitution. the constitution has super majorities in five places, not on advice and consent. that's what we're supposed to do on judges, that's what we're supposed to do on executive -- >> the constitution
at the airport and elsewhere at road blocks and such, but you don't see them out going block by block searching for bodies, searching, you know -- i haven't seen any search and rescue operations, even in the immediate days after the storm. you think back to the tsunami in japan two years ago or three years ago, within a day, there were japanese defense forces out with -- they didn't have earth moving equipment, they were just out on foot walking, block by block. they divided up communities. that has not happened here. people are left to their own devices. i was with a mother who was searching for her six dead children. she found three of them. she had to carry their bodies, place them under sacks but she was still looking for her three other children. her husband she had found his body and there's no one to help these people. you know, people here are very resilient, used to being abandoned by their government for generations, for decades certainly, and, you know, there's not a high expectation on the part of a lot of people here of outside help or governmental help and that is certainly their
going public today at 26. i think at 44, 45, whatever it closed at, that's a pretty big number. i don't know where it's going to go from there. but it was amazing. i think what's really fascinating to me is some of these founders i wrote about in the book, the end of the book, i say they are going to be worth hundreds of millions or a billion dollars and they actually doubled their worth today, some of them that were worth a billion are now worth two billion. >> these four men who were there at the beginning of twitter, who you profile in your book, not only a rocky start at the launch of twitter but things really got nasty between the friends when it came to figuring out who was the best person to run the company. >> exactly. so the story is, you know, there's these four founders, these guys that came from all over america, evan williams grew up in a farm in nebraska, like a town of 250, 260 people. biz stone grew up on welfare. noah glass was born in a commune. they all went to san francisco to silicon valley in search of what we call the modern day dream, tech money, and they came
to fix it. i don't want west virginians to go back or have any west virginian in jeopardy that if they get sick, a catastrophic illness, they could be bankrupt appear lose everything. i don't want a child who had a defect not able to be insured or someone who might have had cancer pre-existing condition not -- we don't want to go back there. but can we fix it? you've got to be compassionate about this but my bill basically, the bill i put in with mark kirk, the republican, my friend from illinois, simply said this. there's no crime and no fine for this one year period until january 1, 2015. there's more problems and we are all acknowledging and seeing them, than just the rollout as far as the computer glitches. there is some product problems and marketability needs to be done here, and the insurance industry is going to have to get real, also, and come to the table and work through this. >> but wouldn't what you and senator landrieu are proposing, allowing anybody to keep their plan in perpetuity, wouldn't that damage the architecture of obama care, the fact that you need
injured, but we don't know the kinds of injuries they sustained, and right now, a lot of witnesses who saw this shooting, who saw him run down that jetway. they are being questioned. surveillance video is being pulled to see how he got in and where he went. so right now, a very active investigation as they try to determine who this man is and what specifically he was doing. jake? >> deborah feyerick, thanks so much. we are seeing pictures right now of passengers walking en masse from the airport. a calm scene that's not anything like how witnesses are describing what happened when the shooting was actually happening. witnesses are using words such as panic and mayhem to describe the scene moments after the shooting. now i want to bring in witness vernon cardinas, an l.a.-based chef. he was at the airport when this all went down and joins us by phone. we're so glad that you're okay. tell us what you saw. >> pretty much, i don't know, we were sitting in our terminal and, you know, normal day as usual. flight's delayed and all of a sudden, we hear like some commotion and before you know it, p
americans who don't have health care coverage, for middle class families whose health care coverage is too expensive, and a party who is willing to shut down the government, hurt our economy and frankly, has not taken shutting down the government again off the table. that is a big contrast that i think when you make it about that choice, protecting middle class families versus doing whatever they can to make obama fail and therefore, this government and the economy hurt, i think that is an argument that the democrats can win. >> ross, you want to indulge me more on this subject? >> obviously, the republicans are going to pick up 17 seats. it's a mathematical certainty. i think that, look, obviously we're a long way out. i think the big danger for the democrats is less the specific political landscape right at this moment and more the possibility that every month or every couple of months, you're going to have a new wave of stories, of controversy and so on, about some aspect of the health care law that americans hadn't been aware of that maybe didn't receive the coverage it should have had
. >> obviously you don't want to tell us the content but it seemed suicidal in nature, the text message? >> well, obviously it's an fbi investigation, but the text message itself i believed was -- the context was that he was thinking about harming himself, yes. >> so you've known paul ciancia's father for some time now, i believe? >> yeah, about 20 years. >> okay. when did ciancia's father call? you said around 12:30 on friday? how much time between you coming by his house and reading the text message, how much time elapsed before you called lapd? >> i got to his house about 12:45. looked at the text message, made a decision and we contacted lapd, at which time i spoke to a lieutenant there who was very helpful, of course. she explained to me that they were in the middle of a shooting at l.a.x. i told her i was aware of that. at this point, we weren't connecting the dots, of course. i asked her if she could conduct a wellbeing check at a residence for me. i received a message from a father in new jersey that is concerned about his son's health or wellbeing, i should say, and she said that they w
're going to get there, we don't have 1,000 flights canceled today. we have 1,000 flights delayed, but we don't have 1,000 flights canceled. >> we love you, always finding the good news in the mess. appreciate it. >> aaa estimates 43 million people are traveling for thanksgiving. and most of them, nearly 39 million, are doing it by road. which is a big problem in western pennsylvania. that part of the state has been getting lashed by the storm for more than 24 hours. and our shannon travis has been standing outside nearly the entire time. shannon, how are the roads doing right now? >> well, john, let me answer that question with something that a state transportation official told me earlier. he essentially said, we dodged a bullet. meaning that the wicked weather that the pittsburgh area was expecting wasn't so wicked after all. they did get a few inches of snow, but the roads have been pretty much clear. we have been driving along them, looking at the roads behind us. they have been pretty much clear. obviously, thanks in part to a lot of crews that have been out, helping to clear the ro
of the trailer for "wolf of wall street"? yes, the market's riding higher than ever before if we don't count inflation. what could possibly, possibly go wrong? i want to bring in zain asher at the new york stock exchange. what is pushing the dow to such dizzying heights? >> reporter: well, largely it is the stimulus. we started off the day right at 16,000, right out of the gate, then we ran into some head winds. what typically happens when you reach a level like 16,000 is that investors naturally will start selling a little bit and taking off some of the profits off the table. also, volume was low today so you're bound to see some volatility when volume is low. i did speak to my source and asked him listen, when can we actually see the dow close above 16,000. they said listen, you have two key events coming up. you have ben bernanke speaking, you also have the fed minutes coming out on wednesday. investors will be looking closely for any hints that stimulus is bound to continue. we know the fed has been holding the market's hand throughout the entire year. we know that we have hit three key
and a heroic ending that you don't want to miss. >> the 2013 cnn hero of the year -- >> reporter: a night to gather together to celebrate the human spirit. >> watch it all this sunday at 8:00 p.m. i'm ashleigh banfield. have a great weekend. "the lead" starts right now. >>> what's a few missing teeth if you can get an ipad mini for under $200? i'm jim acosta. this is "the lead." the world lead. tensions racheting up between china and japan. china seizing a bigger air space and japan making it clear that it won't respect that. u.s. forced to pick a side. >>> the politics lead. brand new polls giving us a snapshot of 2016. you may not be shocked to learn who's in the lead but the runners-up is where it gets interesting. >>> and the buried lead. it's been nearly 50 years since j.d. salinger last published anything but now the stories he kept locked away are suddenly out there for all to read. welcome to "the lead." i'm jim acosta filling in for jake tapper. we begin with the world lead. it's a turf war high above the east china sea. china has just sent its first patrol of fighter je
don't know where their next glass of clean drinking water will come from. >>> and also in world news, no deal. world powers including the u.s. fail to reach an agreement with iran to stop enriching uranium. now that everyone has walked away from the table, what can bring them back? >>> welcome to "the lead." i'm jim sciutto filling in for jake tapper. hope you're having a meaningful and memorable veterans day. we begin with the world lead. just moments ago, the u.s. government announced that it is giving $20 million in humanitarian aid to the philippines after what was quite possibly the strongest storm ever in the recorded history of our planet. super typhoon haiyan. officials estimate that as many as 10,000 people were killed. the number of missing, impossible to say at this point. it's one of those times where words fall short of the images we're seeing. images so eerily reminiscent of the 2004 asian tsunami. towns wiped from the map. families washed away. children ripped from their parents' arms by the rushing, unrelenting water. in the wake, a mess of wrecked homes and wrecked l
don't know who this person is. i know she's the wife of the, you know, of the interior minister who i guess also was under the impression that i said this because he came looking for me when i was on the ground in tacloban. but i don't really know. she's some sort of radio host or something and this is what she said. you know, obviously, having been on the ground there, we were reporting what we were seeing and of course, there's plenty of philippine military and police presence at the airport and at roadblocks. one of the things i was saying is that out in the field, even half a block away or half a mile away from the airport, where people's bodies are laying out, where families are searching for their lost loved ones, they have seen no help. mothers who are searching for their dead kids have gotten no help in that search from rescue workers, according to all the mothers i have been talking to who are there. i have been going back day after day after day to check in on if they have been getting any assistance to try to search for their lost children. so i was saying in japan, we saw
anybody. i don't see evidence here of harm. you have to let minimum go. and parents, many times, can't even talk to the hospital. another federal law, the hipaa laws will say, doctors can't communicate with parents if the child is over 18 in most states, or in pennsylvania, over 14. >> so you're suggesting we've bent over too much in the name of civil liberties and not enough in the name of care and preserving a safe society? >> that's right. we've gone so far, we've forgot compassion to help those who are ill. keep this in mind. of the severely mentally ill, about half of them have something where they don't even recognize they have a problem. patients that i see now in my work, that i do in the navy, some of them are not even aware of their hallucinations or their psychosis or the fact that they have a serious problem, or ptsd, which i know you're deeply concerned about too. so therefore, that patient is not necessarily going to sign themselves into a hospital. but what happens also is you can have a student who's out of school, look at the virginia tech shooter and others, where t
to dallas. i almost hung up the phone and i said lady, you know, we don't run a taxi here, besides, the president's been shot. she said yes, i heard it on the radio. i think my son is the one they've arrested. so i wrote down her address very quickly. another reporter and i went out to the west side of ft. worth. there she stood on the curb, lee harvey oswald's mother. and she immediately began talking about the impact it would have on her. i mean, the president had not been dead two hours and she was saying no one will feel sorry for me, they will give money to my son's wife, they will forget about the mother and i'll starve to death. for her it was some sort of all about money. some of the things she said were so bizarre that i didn't put them in the story. i thought how would you feel if your son had been arrested for something like this. on reflection, i should have. i think we would have gotten a better picture earlier of exactly who lee harvey oswald was. >> you went up to lee harvey oswald and questioned him. >> yes, at the police station. they wanted the news people to see
's only going to rain. it's a rain event. don't think nothing happened. we're not expecting anything to happen there except wind. along the low, that's where the ice is going to be and then back out here is where the snow is going to be. you've got i-70, 64, 66, 75, so many interstates and 41 million people trying to go somewhere just over the next couple days. that's the issue. here's the rain now. it is going to travel up the east coast and much of it is going to fall on areas here in the midatlantic, tennessee, west virginia, southeastern ohio, pittsburgh and it's going to be raining and 31. nothing could be worse to drive on than rain and 31. i'll give you some traction. i grew up in buffalo, i can drive a car in snow, but you put ice on the ground, then some spots, put snow on top of the ice that you can't see, that's where the travel problems are going to be and that's where the travel is going to be an issue. there won't be travel issues for driving, although driving in new york city in the rain is no fun anyway but traveling the northeast, big cities will be okay. the airport
